USAID Launches Major New Civil Society Grant opportunity
April 24, 2015

On Friday, April 24, approximately 50 people from civil society organizations throughout Serbia attended USAID's post-solicitation conference for its newly announced Annual Program Statement, Serbian Civil Society Partners.  Through this second APS - which is essentially a standing, year-long call for proposals - USAID Serbia is soliciting applications from local NGOs to support democratic and economic development. USAID expects most grants to be in the range of $200-300,000 and be operational for a period of approximately two years. The conference enabled potential applicants to learn about this mechanism and ask questions about USAID's grant making process, expanding understanding of how USAID does business and improving the chances of receiving quality proposals.  The Serbian Civil Society Partners APS is a key component of USAID Serbia's strategic shift to deliver all civil society assistance directly through local partners.  The APS is publicly available here: http://www.grants.gov/view-opportunity.html?oppId=275704
